FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) - Police say a man found dead in Flagstaff may have died from exposure.

The Arizona Daily Sun reports (https://bit.ly/2hA7hF3 ) that Flagstaff police say 63-year-old Thomas Edison was unresponsive when a woman found him near an elementary school on Sunday morning. He had a faint pulse at the time.

Edison was taken to Flagstaff Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead after staff spent about an hour trying to revive him.

The police report says Edison was known to local law enforcement and spoke to officers the night before he was found unresponsive. Officers say Edison was intoxicated but awake and did not appear to be injured.

The official cause of death is under investigation. The temperature in Flagstaff dropped to about 39 degrees Saturday night.
